Where there is fun, you know I'll be there I stay in good form until late in the night It's all the same to me then and if I sit with a girl drinking wine and an arm holds me tight, if discretely and quietly, praising our home country a waltz by Strauss resounds: (Refrain) Whether I want it or not - I only hope it comes late -, once I will have to leave this world. I will have part from love and wine, as, whatever you gain, you loose. But, it will be quite o. I won't have to go far, I will fly right into heaven.
Where I will sit, and watch Vienna from above, and see the St. Stephan' s church greeting me.The item "Vintage Anri wooden Bar set & WORKING Music Box made and hand carved in Italy" is in sale since Friday, January 17, 2020.
